Content deleted with password reset - hack?

Recommended Posts

When the app required me to upgrade my account ( i have been using the free version) or to unsync devices, I observed one device in the list I did not recognize (an Android device, while I only have Apple). I removed the Android from my account, but the app advised the unsync had been unsuccessful. Evernote asked me to reset my password, which I did. When I accessed the app using the new password, ALL of my content is missing and the account has started over from scratch. I had been using this for several years and have significant personal information in my account. How can I recover it?

I had exactly the same thing happen to me today. When I logged in after my password was reset there was no data.  I searched for somewhere to find help and guess what, no help without a premium subscription. Looks like black mail to me.  Please tell me I'm wrong, cos after this I will be getting a notebook and a pencil.

I have trusted this app cos I am 72 and have trouble remembering passwords and I have to record my blood pressure, all that data is gone.

You likely created a new account instead of logging in.

One typo in the user name, not checking the messages that follow, and you get a new account.

Quit, and on the next login make sure you type everything correctly.

Dear Pink, Whilst I appreciate your input and indeed I am 72 years old and therefor, obviously, completely computer illiterate I fully understand that you might think I have not tried this every way since Monday. I can assure you this is not the problem, but considering your advice I have tried, several times more to log on with every email address that I might have used to create the account. still no luck.  the content is gone. To me this is testimony to how useless this app is.

Your content is safely waiting for you on the server - unless you deleted your account yourself.

Since the forum is user 2 user, we can’t help you beside giving general advise. You can contact support as a guest. Choose „Account“ as ticket type, this should work without being logged in with a subscription.

Wish you good luck !

Hi Pink,

My problem has been resolved, thanks to you and Eden. It seems that I used googlemail when I set up my Evernote account and of course as you pointed out, when I logged in with my asia-mail account there was nothing there.    I have now logged in using google and all is fine again.  Thank you so much for your help

and for restoring my faith in Evernote.
